  1. We could but we would not get much!
    Not enough people prepared to go on the public treadmill.
    Maximum continuous rate of working for a non-athlete is about 75 watts (about one-tenth of a HP) – the selling price for that effort would be about 3/4 of a US cent per hour, so the pay rate would have to be be less than 1/2 that. Would you do it?
    BTW, it’s OK for a bycycle lamp or to keep the radio going when the power is out!
    There are wind-up radios and flashlamps, too.
